A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words....So, This is Actually a Very Long E-Mail!

Top of Santa Lucia
Anti Trunky Meeting 
Santa Lucia with Elder Shaw


Our Apartment Group at Santa Lucia

The Climb up to Santa Lucia

We were able to go to the Temple too....

Well a picture is worth a thousand words right?

This email is going to be super short.  Elder Sercovich and I just kinda lost track of time during the day.  Elder Sercovich had lots of stuff that he had to do today to get ready for his departure in a few short weeks.

This past week was a rough one.  One of the secrets about Santiago is that in February, everyone leaves town, and Elder Sercovich and I were really affected by that this week.  We didn´t have too much success teaching lessons and finding new people to teach.  Lots of citas (lessons) fell through, and we spent a lot of time in the streets, but even the streets were empty!  We did have some good moments -- we did a little service, and we had some good meetings, and were able to go out with the youth to do some visits too.  On Wednesday we taught our monthly zone class, and President Wright and Hna Wright came again to "observe", which always makes the class interesting.  They helped Elder Sercovich and me out a lot.  And on Saturday Morning we had our "Anti-Trunky" meeting for all of the missionaries that are leaving at the end of this transfer, and their companions.  We spent two or three hours with President Wright discussing why being trunky (missionary term for being so ready to finish the mission, that my trunk is already packed to head home) is bad, and we all made a pledge to not waste these last weeks of the mission.  We went to the temple too!  Other than that, it was a pretty normal week.  My sunburn is getting better :)  I hope that you all have a great week, and I love you so much.  Thanks for the support!
